General Comments

Druid of the Scythe is a flexible minion with great utility. Both modes are highly playable depending on the situation. A 3 Mana 4/2 with Rush is almost as good as Shadow Bolt, while a 3 Mana 2/4 with Taunt is great at clogging up the board against other aggressive decks.


Constructed Play

Druid of the Scythe slots best into aggressive and midrange Druid decks. It currently shines in Spiteful Druid decks, but does not see play in other Druid decks due to several limitations on the card. Druid of the Scythe cannot be played in Witching Hour decks because it will add a weak Beast to the death pool, and it cannot be played in Oaken Summons decks as it is a poor Recruit target.



Druid of the Scythe does an excellent impression of a removal spell when played as a 4/2 Rush minion, which makes it a valuable pick for Arena decks. The incredible flexibility of Druid of the Scythe allows it to slot into any kind of Arena deck.
